Breaking down my drawing process with a parody character, McDonald Duck.

It probably seems that I do my preliminary drawings exclusively with a blue pencil, but I also draw on the tradition (thanks to Ken Southworth) to use different colours for different body parts, clothing, layers etc. to keep the sketch more clear to myself.

Happy 75th Birthday, Lucky Luke!

The most classic and influential European comic book character, by far; besides Spirou, Tintin, and Asterix.

'Duck Fan', literally

Early Donald Duck pitch material piece, which was done a little less than two years ago. I was trying to find my own "style voice", which I think worked out fine here, showing both, the general look of the duck characters (more slim and bendy) and samples of props and scenery design, in this case the interior view of a secret casting laboratory of sorts, probably somewhere in an industrial estate at the outskirts of Duckburg. I showed already an early rough sketch of this here, but not the finished artwork.
